The NBA tracks all medical issues and is interested in finding out whether Bosh and Teletovic succumbing to the same condition -- one that often results from lengthy sedentary periods, such as many hours on airplanes -- was a coincidence or a trend. And while two cases is hardly an epidemic, it's gotten the attention of executives, coaches, other players and basketball staff who spend much of their lives immobilized, 30,000 feet in the air.

Bosh, who is receiving care under the guidance of Miami HEAT team physicians at a Baptist Health System Hospital, is currently resting comfortably. Chris is OK and his prognosis is good. NBA.com

Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh remains hospitalized for what could be a possible blood clot in his lung, though Heat Coach Erik Spoelstra cautioned that Bosh’s illness is not life threatening and that it was still too early to tell what is causing him pain. “Frankly, there’s not a full diagnosis right now,” he said on Friday following the team's shootaround ahead of its game with the Knicks.

“He’s in great care right now in a South Miami hospital,” Spoelstra said. “It’s too early for an ultimate diagnosis. I know there’s a lot of speculation, a lot of rumors out there. He’s seeing a couple more specialists today and we’ll know more information either tonight or tomorrow. But he’s in great care and in good spirits right now.” New York Daily News

The Heat remained unsure of Chris Bosh’s medical situation Friday morning, but they are confident that their star player’s life is not in jeopardy. Bosh has been hospitalized this week in Miami and remained there for continued examinations while his teammates headed north to visit the Knicks on Friday. There were multiple media reports that doctors are concerned Bosh has a blood clot in his lungs, which would likely end his season, but coach Erik Spoelstra cautioned everyone to be patient.

If the clot issue is confirmed, Bosh potentially could miss the remainder of the season. "In terms of all the rumors and speculation, we're aware of all the things that are out there," Spoelstra said in New York, where the Heat will play the Knicks on Friday night. "Everybody's jumping the gun right now. I know there's a lot out there. "Frankly, there's not a full diagnosis right now. So for everybody to speculate, right now at this stage it's very premature."
